Adult Faith Studies

Holy Trinity offers regular studies that teach us how to incorporate faith into our daily lives. Please see below for a listing of our current and upcoming faith studies. We also offer a monthly lecture events called Speaker Series. To learn more about Speaker Series, please click here.

Hosea – Tuesdays at 10:30AM
(starting Tuesday, August 11)
Join Rev. Danielle every Tuesday at 10:30AM, starting August 11 for a study of God’s persistent love as we study the book of Hosea. Through studying Hosea we will venture into a turbulent place of love and justice, and promise and pain, all of which are close to the heart of God. The power and emotion is sure to grab us as we look into the first of the Minor Prophets. The prophecy of Hosea doesn’t progress logically from beginning to conclusion – it’s circular – going back and forth between judgement and mercy! We do hope you’ll join us for what is bound to be a bumpy ride glancing through one of our minor prophets of the Old Testament! *As of right now – this Bible Study will take place via Zoom – please contact the Parish Administrator for the link.*  

Racial Justice – Wednesdays at 7:00PM, or, Thursdays at 12:00PM
(starting August 12 and 13)
An important response to systemic racism and racial injustice is through education—educating ourselves and seeing the realities of the world beyond our singular perspective. Join us as we study together the many different facets of racism through five different sessions. You do not need to attend all sessions, but can pick and choose which are of interest for you (though we sure do encourage attending all of them as they are fascinating!). All sessions are listed below. A Zoom link and signup will be sent out closer to the dates – but until then – mark your calendars!
